I appreciate that products that contain nuts need to have warnings on them to alert people who suffer allergic reactions but I sometime wonder whether this policy goes a bit too far. The reason I say this is that I picked up a large bag of unshelled mixed nuts in the supermarket the other day. The product is clearly labelled as "unshelled mixed nuts" and it is clearly what it says on bag. On the back is a large label saying "warning may contain nuts". I find the wording somewhat amusing "may contain nuts", I thought I had brought a bag of nuts, is there any doubt that the product has nuts in it, what else would it contain?
